Experience Follonica and the beauty of Southern Tuscany

Real estate opportunities within beaches and unspoiled nature



Follonica is a famous location of Tuscany Maremma, Southern Tuscany. It is in the center of the homonymous gulf, between the city of Piombino and the exclusive Punt’Ala. It is known worldwide for the mild and breezy climate, the centuries-old pine forests and the crystal clear sea. Loved both by Italian and foreign tourists, its sunsets - overlooking the Elba island - let everybody speechless and attracts real estate investors.

Between history and nature: discovering Follonica and nearby suggestive villages

Follonica was funded in 1834, when Grand Duke Leopold II opened the Imperial Foundries. MAGMA - the Museum of Cast Iron Arts of the Maremma - offers a unique testimony of this ancient, fascinating activity now abandoned.

The town hosts a beautiful pedestrian promenade, two wide pine forests and 8km of coastline. This is composed of free beaches and equipped beach clubs appreciated by families. The whole Gulf offers several wonderful beaches mostly of fine and white sands. Carbonifera, Torre Mozza, Boschetto, Pratoranieri and the Lido are the most popular beaches.


Cycling and long walks enthusiasts can enjoy the beauty of the surrounding unspoiled nature. For example, Montioni Park offers a wide trail with different destinations from Poggio del Saracino to Torre della Pievaccia. Bandite Park of Scarlino offers amazing trails, too. Indeed, from the tourist harbour of Scarlino you can reach beautiful beaches such as Cala Martina, Cala Civette and Cala Violina. This last one is one of the most famous Italian beaches.


The surroundings of Follonica offer several places of historical and artistic importance. Massa Marittima, for example, is a well-known medieval village ehanced by a characteristic square. Scarlino is another typical medieval village dominated by the Rocca Pisana Castle. Not to mention Gavorrano and its naturalistic Mining Park. Here, don't miss the Teatro delle Rocce, a suggestive structure that evokes an ancient Greek theater built in an old limestone quarry. In addition, other popular destinations such as Castiglione della Pescaia, Grosseto, the exclusive area of ​​the Argentario and Elba island are few km away.
